Adult children of aging parents

This circle is for adult children acting as caretakers or simply coping with the reality of aging parents. Strength and courage is needed during what can be a difficult time of change.

Loving God, we pray for children of parents experiencing terminal illness, pain, depression, grief, or simply the effects of failing health and the subsequent lifestyle changes that they bring. This is a difficult life process. Children who once needed their own caretakers are now acting in that role themselves. Loving God, I offer a special prayer for those of us like myself who find themselves in that position in the midst of an already strained relationship. Loving God, in your power be present in these relationships and with the parents and adult children involved. More than that, imbue these relationships with love and peace. Fill those encounters between parent and child with the love that you showed for us when you sent your son to Earth to feel the emotions that we feel, such love that can embrace even our enemies and cause us to replace anger with love. Amen
